Question Crank Case Vent Filter Change????

Went to dealer a few days ago to get a fuel filter. Parts man asked how many miles I had on my truck and I told him. He told me at 65,000 I need to change my Crank Case Vent Filter. I knew nothing about it. The damn thing is $119. Anyone changed this yet? Or can we delete the thing?

They are a large filter under the top of the engine that has the 6.7 logo on it. I would call Cummins and order it from them. It should be cheaper.

It looks a little bit like a transmission filter to me, I don't have a picture on the filter but here is one of the location.

Thanks for the pics Slagburn! It looks like you have taken lots of things apart on your truck since you have owned it. Reminds me of a cousin of mine who used to take everything apart to learn how things worked...when he was a kid he DID have a problem with putting things back together though!

I guess that cleaning it is probably out of the question if it is a pleated paper filter inside that plastic cover.

I paid 52 dollars at a dodge dealer just for the filter. They wanted 120 for it installed. It only takes about 10 minutes to change it out, you just have to remove the fake valve cover which is only 8 screws i think. You cant clean it as its a filter that is covered in excess oil. I had to change mine out at 50,000 miles instead of 65k due to it getting to nasty and not letting off excess exhaust causing a oil leak out of my oil cap.
